You seem to be looping Arthur.  F8 security updates end in
about six months and no, you're not safe without them.

How do you define safe?

I have run old version of KDE 3.1 from Mandrake 9.1 gotten on internet, no single update whatsoever, and I have been safe. So it can be done, do you mean other updates, that can be critical, with apps and not the desktop here.
That is like saying you have played Russian Roulette twice and not been killed. It doesn't mean that your are "safe," it just means that the law of averages has not exhibited "regression to the mean" yet. No computer is really "safe," but you can reduce the mean time to failure by letting the evil-doers evolve their attacks without evolving your defenses.z
